Diabetic Gingerbread Cupcakes

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by PaulaG

This was a WeightWatchers recipe that I modified to make it more diabetic friendly. The original recipe called for all purpose flour, brown sugar, butter and an egg. I mixed the flours, used natural unsweetned applesauce for the butter and egg substitute for the egg. Also, the molasses was cut from 1/3 cup to 2 tablespoons.

The flavor is really delicious and I love what the pepper does for it. I used 2 Tbsp of Splenda brown sugar blend, doubled the cinnamon and a 1/4 cup of egg white. I checked them at 20 mins and they were done. Even then they were beginning to be a bit chewy so I would recommend that you check them early. All in all these were a real success and well enjoyed. Made for "Partying The Diabetic Way".
